Technical Information

canopy bow arm converter on a electric garage door Electric garage door safety reverse facilityFor so many projects exact technical information will be essential in the initial designs and we can provide as much technical information as required by the homeowner, builder or architect.

With so many garage doors the mechanism for the actual door operation and the electric drive mechanism can be very intrusive inside the garage and it is essential to know the path and dimensions of the gear in a new build. For a replacement garage door we would tailor the mechanism to suit the existing layout.

So many garage doors can have bespoke mechanism specified for little extra cost but a huge gain in aesthetics and internal use of the garage. We can help you work out the best mechanism for the optimum performance, dimensions and internal space usage.

A lot of technical information is already readily available in PDF brochures within our website. Simply search for the appropriate door type, manufacturer and model if applicable and details for the dimensions and other factors should be within the documents.

Some information is not of course readily available in document form and is only available through years of experience and again, this is why The Garage Door Centre unlike most door companies can offer you a far higher degree of expertise to ensure you get what you need from a new door.
